SLA strengthens Jaffna coastal defences

[TamilNet, Monday, 27 May 2002, 12:39 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Army is constructing new bunkers and check posts in the coastal areas of Vadamarachchi division in Jaffna, residents said Monday. The military began strengthening its coastal defenses in the villages of Polikandy, Thikkam, Sakkottai, Manalkaadu and Kudaththanai. The SLA is also engaged in fortifying its camps in the interior sectors of the division, sources said.

Meanwhile the SLA, vacated a camp in a private building at Thumpalai, Maniayakaran junction south of Pt. Pedro town Saturday and has put up a new camp in a private bare land in the area, according to residents.

Meanwhile sources said that more than one thousand five hundred Tamil families that resettled in the LTTE held Maruthankerni division on Jaffna’s southeastern coast face great hardship in obtaining medical facilities as the government dispensary in the area has not yet been reopened.

People in this area have to walk long distances to the hospital in Chavakachcheri or to the dispensary in the LTTE held Mullaitivu district, sources said.
